## Question:

Consider fluid flowing with a free stream velocity of 1 ft/s over a flat plate, where the critical Reynolds number is 5 × 10^{5}. Determine the distance from the leading edge at which the transition from laminar to turbulent flow occurs for air (at 1 atm), liquid water, isobutane, and engine oil, and mercury. Evaluate all properties at 50°F.
